Alameda Artists is a Meetup group for all Bay Area Artists.

Have you ever wanted to head over to the ferry to sketch the boats, cranes and bright colored shipping containers?

Or simply sit in the coffee shop and make quick studies of the patrons?

The Alameda Artist Group is for artists in all creative media and practicing at all skill levels. (And you don't have to live in Alameda! we usually meet in Alameda but anyone who wants to sketch and draw and make art is welcome)

Inspire others or be inspired, learn new techniques to implement or brush up on some old ones.  Hone your craft and meet new people with similar interests.

Lets pick our favorite Alameda locations together, bring our favorite media to work in. We will sketch, paint, ink all over Alameda!

There is no required fee for our meetups. There is suggested donation of $5-$10.

If we hold a special event or class there may be an additional fee for that specific event.  The cost of each class or event will vary depending on supplies needed.  The cost for the class will be announced when the event is created.

Our meetups are pretty laid back. You do not have to participate in a class to come to a meetup. If you are not interested in taking the class scheduled,  feel free to just come observe and sketch.

2015 Call For Art: 
We are going to have a show that features work that was inspired by or created in an Alameda Artist Meetup.  If you have a piece that Alameda Artists had some help in inspiring, hold on to it!  

We have loosely planned a date towards the end of this year (in or near December).  The exact date of this show is TBA.

An official call for art will be held for this show in October!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
